Capcom pokes fun at Microsoft and Star Wars

By Spencer . September 12, 2007 . 3:08pm

The clever localization staff at Capcom managed to sneak in more pop culture references in Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. Early on there are some celebrity puns and later you encounter geekier ones. The office where one of the characters works in episode 3 is Blue Screens Inc., an obvious reference to the […]

Top of the trilogy, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations

By Spencer . September 7, 2007 . 7:01pm

I know I’m a bit behind all the other Phoenix Wright fans (other games and all!), but I just finished the final case in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations. I’ll sum up the nitty gritty first. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations plays exactly the same as the second game (Justice for […]

Capcom is pretty much done with Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations. The full English version is already out in Japan and it is coming to America in less than a month. What about Gyakuten Saiban 4? It looks like Capcom is hard at work on it. Screenshots of the first case in German are floating […]

First play with Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations

By Spencer . August 22, 2007 . 3:13am

I got my copy of the third game in the Phoenix Wright series and blasted through the first case. Similar to Infernal Affairs III, Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations jumps between the past and the future of the series. In the first case you play as Mia Fey, Phoenix’s mentor, when she was a rookie […]

Ace Attorney without the “Phoenix”!? First play with Odoroki

By Richard . April 30, 2007 . 11:37am

Anticipation was high among fans for the fourth installment of the Phoenix Wright (Gyakuten Saiban) series which was announced for the DS. The long wait is finally over and unlike the DS re-releases of the first two games, there is no English language option.  This might be unfortunate for some fans since the game is […]

By Spencer . April 16, 2007 . 4:06pm

I know Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trial and Tribulations is coming out in September, but the law game that has my eye this year is Capcom’s Harvey Birdman title. Capcom announced the title at their 2007 Gamers day and a few more details about the game are trickling in. It’s being pegged as an “interactive […]

Need a reason to import Gyakuten Saiban 4?

By Rolando . April 12, 2007 . 9:14am

Are you bummed by the semi-fact that Gyakuten Saiban 4 may not be released here in the U.S.? Does it bother you that Gyakuten Saiban 3, a GBA exclusive title release only in Japan, never made it to U.S. shores either? Do you love being the lawyer in court simulation games because you enjoy arguing? […]

It’s entitled "Phoenix Wright – Trials Tribu", which is speculated to be Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations. Capcom hasn’t made any announcements about Phoenix Wright’s third game […]

It’s a new arc in Capcom’s Ace Attorney series with a new lawyer and a whole new cast of characters. The first character you see in the trailer is Odoroki, the lawyer you play in Gyakuten Saiban 4. Instead of having psychic help from the Fey family Odoroki has a bracelet which he uses to […]
